“All over the world, in my experience, young people, no matter how young, say things of great wisdom. They say ‘it’s not fair’ and ‘you’re not the boss of me’ — that is the basis of all social justice movements.”
October 2017 - Gloria Steinem
, a writer, lecturer, political activist and feminist organizer, spoke to more than 600 students at Branksome Hall and later to a sold-out audience at Convocation Hall.

She is particularly interested in the shared origins of sex and race caste systems, gender roles and child abuse as roots of violence, non-violent conflict resolution, the cultures of indigenous peoples, and organizing across boundaries for peace and justice.

, is her first in over 20 years. She lives in New York City. For more about Gloria Steinem, please visit: http://www.gloriasteinem.com/
